Active Warrior 5km Obstacle Course

October 19, 2019

The Active Warrior 5k is the original event in the Active Warrior series. With its signature 100-meter water slide, over 40 manmade and naturally occurring obstacles, it takes in the best of the varied landscape the Southampton Outdoor Sports Centre has to offer to create the perfect obstacle based challenge.

As part of our 2019 improvements, which introduces new obstacles, a new medal, free adult participant t-shirts, we have redesigned the course to bring together the best of the adult course and the young recruit’s course to create one challenge fit for all.


Active Warrior is powered by Active Nation, a charity on a mission to persuade the Nation to be Active. Enjoyment is the single biggest factor in motivating children to be active, new analysis from Sport England Reveals.We know our course is enjoyable, so we’ve made a commitment to inspire a generation of children to be active. For every adult ticket purchased, we will award one free child place, either as part of a family ticket or, if it’s an adult only ticket, we will donate the free place to a local school.

This event is suitable for all motivations, and here’s our guide:

  • The Forlorn Hope – The 09:30 wave is our only competitive element, its race for those who like to compete. If you want to be among the first warriors to take on this course, then this is the option for you. This ticket includes limitless entry to course meaning you can complete as many laps as you like after the first race wave.
  • Adult only ticket – The 10:00 and 10:30 waves are for adults only, meaning you can take on the challenge before we unleash young recruits on the course. This ticket works on the family waves if you don’t have children and want to donate your free child ticket to a local school.

Adult only tickets include your entry wrist band, a participant t-shirt, a finishers medal and free event photos. Please note: purchasing an adult only ticket means your free child ticket will be donated to a local school.

  • Family ticket (11:00, 11:30 & 12:00) – The price includes your course entry wrist band, a participant t-shirt (adults only), a finishers medal and free event photos. Children under 8 must be accompanied around the course by an adult and all children under the age of 16 require parental consent.
  • Additional child ticket – if you need an additonal child place, on top of your free ticket, they can be purchased at 50% of a full priced adult ticket.

Family tickets include entry wrist bands, a finishers medal and free event photos. Please note: as Young Recruits get to go free, there is a small charge for their t-shirt.

The 2019 event village will be a buzz with activity including activities, food, and the bag drop area. The start and finish arena will include the warm up area and parking is free.

When buying your ticket you can set up a team which will allow you to invite others, share ideas and make event day arrangements. So, gather your friends, family or colleagues and get entered, turn up & collect your T-shirt, leave with a big smile, happy memories, and get ready to face the challenge!
